Description Capricorn Bowden PTFE Tubing XS
The Capricorn XS series professional Bowden Tubing is made from the highest quality PTFE. The secret mix of additives with high lubrication causes the deep-blue colour. The Capricorn XS PTFE tube is suitable for a 1.75 mm filament and has the lowest possible friction, and is resistant against higher temperatures than the TL variant.
- For printing with a flexible filament
- For printing with high temperatures, such as with ABS or PETG
- For printing with an abrasive filament
- For printing with maximum speed
High Lubricity Additives make the XS series Bowden PTFE tubes the tubes with the lowest friction in on the market. The additives are included in the PTFE, they are not a coating. Less friction means greater responsiveness, less retraction, more accurate printing, less slippage or wear and tear at the extruder and equally less clogging during printing with thick filaments, such as wood or iron filaments.
Lower retraction means timesaving every time the extruder retracts. Over the duration of a printing session a few milliseconds here and there will accumulate into considerable time saved.
1.9 mm inner diameter
The 1.9 mm inner diameter with a very tight tolerance of ± 0.05 mm, is more than for traditional PTFE tubes and therefore reduces the ‘wriggle room’ or kinking in the tube, in order to allow you to print with flexible filaments in 3D, even on the longest Bowden systems.
High temperature resistance
The high temperature additive improves the thermal characteristics of the PTFE, allowing this to print at higher temperatures for a longer period. Our XS tubes operate at even higher temperatures than our TL series.
